As a mom who followed her children and watching what happens around them, I can say that this survey can be easily extended in Italy, if not the whole world.

This is because I realize that from the earliest years of life of children, there is a certain indifference to what is given them to drink and eat.

Known to all is that the color is a soft drink, but rich glaze of caffeine. Yet despite this, it also offers peace to children in kindergarten.

In addition to the Cola there are other substances which contain caffeine. tags that are eaten or drunk by our children every day (often excessively).

The best known are the, often used during the summer thirst-quencher, but rich in protein that has the same effects as caffeine.

Another element is the chocolate, everyone knows its energizing properties, but often no one asks the reason for these properties.

Unfortunately not everyone knows that in addition to coffee, tea, cola and chocolate, there are many other foods that we give to our children almost every day, without realizing that we are giving them a certain amount of excitement.

We should realize that on the one hand we make the happiness of our children when we give them bread or biscuits or chocolate egg with surprise, and secondly, we are doing them harm.

Excessive use of these substances, especially if prolonged, leads to arousal, hyper-activity, insomnia. It is and you notice that children and young people are not calm, it hard to relax, have a hard time falling asleep. This then is little or no quiet


This leads to an obvious conclusion!

If at first you have the behavior of hyper activity in the long run, you can get to more serious situations, behavioral, physical and psychological problems more severe.

Perhaps it would be more just a little more careful what I eat and drink now our children to give them a better psycho-physical state when they are adults.

Better safe than sorry.
